I have a cornbread recipe that my kids really like. I know that the cornmeal may not be the best, but I am wondering how to make this recipe plan friendly. The current recipe is 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup yellow cornmeal, 2/3 cup white sugar, 1 tsp salt, 3 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and 1/3 cup vegetable oil. Do you think it would work if I used unsweetened almond milk, coconut oil, golden flax or almond flour and Nunaturals? Thanks!
I'm not sure how plan-friendly cornmeal is. It has 83 net carbs per cup. That plus the additional flour, say it's spelt at 72 net carbs per cup, puts the recipe at 155 carbs. Divided into say 9 servings is about 17-18 carbs per serving.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE cornbread, but have put it into a 'cheat' category in my head, as I usually bake it when we're having chili, in which case the net carbs of the cornbread combined with the carbs of E style chili would probably be too high for the 45 g meal allowance.
If you were set on trying to make it E friendly, I know cornbread works very well with almond milk, I've made mine that way for years. You'd need to swap out the oil with a fat replacement, with say applesauce (which will up the carbs a little bit) or greek yogurt; the egg with egg whites; and you would not use the almond flour, as it is an S, unless you were going for more of a Crossover type recipe. (In which case I suppose you could leave in the egg and use coconut oil.) Using nunaturals to sweeten it should work fine.
Also remember, if you were using it in E style, you would only use 1 tsp of butter on it, unless you are having the added fat somewhere else in your dinner. (And if you use honey on it like I loved to do, it would push the carbs higher. )
I tried making my own E style muffin-in-a-mug with a oats, quinoa flakes, 1 T of cornmeal for that taste/texture, egg whites, stevia, and yogurt. Didn't love how it turned out. If I perfect it I'll post
For me, I think it is easier to just make the regular recipe for my Hubby and babes, and either have a tiny tiny sliver, or just forego it, knowing I'm getting skinnier
But if you really really want to experiment with it, go for it! And let us know if you come up with anything fabulous

I want to give these a try sometime to see how "cornbread" they are like. Might do stevia for honey, but leave in the applesauce since it is such a little amount spread for 6 muffins and provides some moisture I might add a bit of water for the moisture lost from the honey.
solagratia: I'm new and not sure how this this works...new to THM too and have a question. Appreciate any help I can get.

solagratia: I've been doing THM about 2 weeks and I'm starting to loose a bit of wieght but my breath has become strange. I can't smell it but my husband says it's a bit metallic and quite strongly ammonia-like in its smell.

solagratia: We're concerned since I am nursing our 11 month old. I've had this happen before when I've tried to loose weight while still nursing. But years ago (before my childbearing and nursing days) I lost weight when needed without this side affect.

solagratia: My mild supply seems fine, but we are concerned about how this could affect the baby or if something is wrong with me. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks

steffanie3: solagratia, it sounds like you are in ketosis are you mixing up your fuels well? If you would like you can post a few days menus in a thread above and the ladies are great about helping make suggestions

Dutchi: Is there a limit for how much almond milk you can use in a meal...any category? For example...can I use 1.5 cups of almond milk in a smoothie with whey and berries and still have it be a FP? I find the ice waters down the flavour too much for my liking.

Dutchi: I bought some whey powder at the bulk food store. Most recipes call for 1 scoop. Can you tell what 1 scoop would equal...1 tablespoon...2 tablespoons?
Mar 17, 2015 13:14:00 GMT -5
steffanie3: Dutchi a cup and a half can work specifically in that example, typically it is good to stick to a serving is a good idea

steffanie3: You might have to check with the store to be sure, a typical scoop is 1/4 to a 1/3 but they can vary a bit. For protein you do want a whey protein isolate, cross-microfiltered preferred.

linmom3: What are some options to use to bread meat? I am out of almond flour and really don't want to go to the store.

nakona62: Is it ok to have an S dessert right after an S meal, or when do you have your desserts?

stacylynn: linmom - I am sorry that this is so late, but for next time, try dipping your meat in mayo and "bread" it with nutritional yeast and spices. YUMMY! Chicken is especially taste-y prepared this way.

stacylynn: nakona - Sure! : I find if I eat my dessert directly after a meal, I don't want to graze. It works for me!

stacylynn: katiehatty - I have read various tweaks regarding the pudding. What is it that bothers you about the pudding?
